Short Answer: Use the J2SE 1.4.2 Documentation Download link at http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/download.html

How I Found This Link: At http://java.sun.com in the "Popular Downloads" section, I clicked on "Java SE" to go to the "Java SE Downloads" page. From the "Java SE Downloads" page, I browsed to the "Previous Releases" page. From the "Previous Releases" page, I followed the link for "J2SE 1.4.2 Downloads".

Thanks for the info above.
However, times are a changing. I am learning Java 5 with HFJ. I also need the J2SE API Documentation.
The problem is that the download center is now geared for 6 and not 5.
I have gone to the links above and navigated around for quite a while and keep coming back to JSE 6. I can not even find the J2SE API Documentation.

Any help finding it would be appreciated. Even a link to anywhere else will be just fine. If need be, email it to me? I do not know how big it is so this might not be an option.

Again, thanks in advance.

Thank you Ben. I had found this page.
However, the title for this post is to find the download link for the API Documentation.
I need to download the entire API doc to load on my laptop so I can access it even when I am not on line.

By chance, did you find it?

Again, thanks in advance.
